If you're less lucky, you'll be the subject of an all-out attack by neoconservative pundits and accused of rabid anti-Semitism.

Dagger Aimed at Sharon Really Meant for Israel (tags)

This week, Human Rights Watch, a New York-based organization, said that Sharon — now Israel's prime minister — should be put on trial as a war criminal for what happened in 1982. "There's no statute of limitations on crimes against humanity," says Kenneth Roth, executive director of Human Rights Watch. I suppose this should make me sympathetic to the campaign to brand Sharon a war criminal. But I'm not, because I don't think Human Rights Watch is acting in good faith.
